Tiny Tinas Wonderlands cant be upgraded if you buy a physical Xbox One version

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands players won’t be eligible for a new-gen upgrade if they purchase a physical Xbox One copy of the game.

The news appears to have first arisen months ago, but it’s now been recirculated under fresh scrutiny with the launch of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands now less than two days away. On the FAQ section (opens in new tab) of the game’s official website, developer Gearbox reveals that those who purchase a physical Xbox One copy of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands won’t be able to upgrade it to a native Xbox Series X/S version.

“A physical Xbox One game disc of the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Standard Edition will play on Xbox Series X but it cannot be upgraded to the Xbox Series X version of the game and will not be optimized for Xbox Series X,” the website reads. However, it adds that those who purchase the physical Next-Level and Chaotic Great editions of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will bag themselves both last and new-gen versions of the game.

It’s unclear why Xbox One players who buy a disc of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands won’t be in for a new-gen upgrade at a later date. Xbox has been incredibly clear about pushing its Smart Delivery service since the launch of the Xbox Series X/S, guaranteeing players a new-gen copy of a game if they purchase it on Xbox One. There’s simply no information why Gearbox has broken away from this with Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. We reached out to 2K for clarification and were told only that it’s “based on what is technically possible on each platform.”

However, those who purchase a physical PS4 copy of the new action-packed shooter will be in for a native PS5 upgrade whenever they please. Given that one system allows free new-gen upgrades on disc but not the other, it paints this venture by Gearbox in an even stranger light. Here’s hoping the developer clears up the matter for customers sooner rather than later.
